"Ole G. Mouritsen's Seaweeds is a wonderfully wide-ranging, beautifully illustrated introduction to these strange, underappreciated, delicious forms of life." -Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen "Seaweeds is by far the most comprehensive, informative, and creative offering on macroalgae I have ever seen. And to this wealth of information, Ole G. Mouritsen has added many personal anecdotes, unusual recipes, and beautiful pictures. Anyone with simple curiosity or extensive knowledge about marine algae will enjoy this extraordinary book." -Shep Erhart, author of Sea Vegetable Celebration"
